Details

We have the backend to enable context sensitive help in the Page Info window, so we need a reference for this window, similar to the Options/Preferences window. This should be part of the in-product help.
Had some time to kill again and wrote up a first draft of this:
http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Page+Info+window

Some comments:
* All based on tonight's Firefox trunk nightly, so it doesn't apply to Firefox 2.
* How much explanation should be given for the "Technical details" of security certificates? I wrote very little, and if you can read the window, you'll learn nothing new from the article.
Looks good to me. There were some minor changes I made, plus:
- this is an in-product article, so I switched the links pointing the options window, menu reference, and cookies pages to the in-product versions. (We'll eventually amalgamate them with their current KB counterparts).
- I implemented SHOWFOR on the OS specific stuff. See <http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Using+SHOWFOR>.

Some questions:
- Does the "Type" item in the Media panel go by file type or content type?
- Is there a reason why there's no screenshot for the Permissions panel?
- What is the "Permissions for" field?

Finally, seeing as this an in-product article, exclusive to Firefox 3, and links to other in-product articles, we should keep it in the staging area, until the rest of the in-product pages go live.

Thanks a lot Bo. Good work.

I made a couple of edits:
* I don't know why the permissions screenshot wasn't displaying; it did last night and was in the markup... It is now.
* Fixed a typo of mine and a link of Chris's
* Fixed the "Permissions for" wording

The Media tab displays the file type for some things - if you get select .png, you'll get "PNG Image", and a .gif is "GIF image." For other things it displays the content type, e.g. "application/x-shockwave-flash" for a .swf.
